    OMG There is a The Dreaming collection?!?!?!!? I must get it, since I don’t have the individual volumes– my good friend has them, and I’ve read them, and they need to my on my bookshelf.

    Also, congrats on getting a copy of Matched! 😀 I’m receiving two copies, but I don’t have either just yet.

    There is no such thing as an embarrassing amount of library books. Hold your head up high.

    The zombie/vampire book looks cute. Great manga too. Have you ever heard of a manga series called Swan? I saw it at the library yesterday – something about an aspiring ballerina. It looked intriguing but they didn’t have the first volume available.
